Next week I'm scheduled for my first dental checkup and cleaning since my Ross Procedure 9 months. ago.
My dentist has asked about inquired regarding prophylactic antibiotics and my post-op situation. My surgeon's office has given me guidance about this, nonetheless, I'm interested in hearing from other patients about what their doctors have recommended or prescribed to them. My operation was deemed successful. A Ross involves switching out my own pulmonary valve for my calcified bicuspid aortic valve, and replacing my pulmonary valve with a human donor valve. No synthetic materials or animal tissues were involved.
I'd appreciate learning about what protocols, if any, were/are still required and what are the timelines, i.e. months/years /forever regarding antibiotics and routine dental work. Input from people here would be much appreciated.
